Birds of a Feather.....

Hello blogging friends: I have another card to add to my MASCULINE stash, I made a point to have a good amount at hand for family and friends. I'll link up to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This images are from a Paper Tray Ink stamp and die set called Feather Finery, it has a companion die set that really comes in handy to cut this beautiful feathers.
I stamped the big one on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white, I did the same with the sentiment and the little bird.  The small feather is stamped on vellum with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I made a bow with a bit of white twine.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment and birds are from the same set.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

International Art and Soul Challenge #28 "Emboss and use a die"
International Art & Soul

My Time To Craft Challenge #365 "Monochromatic"
My Time To Craft!

Crafter's Castle Challenge #3 "Anything Goes or Share your favorite Technique"
I love the look of HEAT EMBOSSING.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

What a cute, cute sentiment with this! Love how you did the feathers in black and white. Those little birds together are just adorable. You remind me again that I have real feathers I keep meaning to use. So much stuff to play with!
